Inquiry

Our Inquiry unit this term will focus on two key areas of Geography:

– How people change their environement

– How the environements can influence people

We will be using ‘bushfires’ as our main context as this is a local phenomena for us. Bushfires affect many people in Australia and people are preparing for them in increasingly complex ways.

We will make link to other forms of natural disaster such as flood and earthquake and use our near neighbour, New Zealand, as a further case study.

Below is a list of websites we will be using throughout the unit:
